A second chance for the Raptors to cover the spread +7.5@-110 (odds via FanDuel)
The Raptors ended up losing by a score of 131-111 in Game 1. The Raptors struggled defensively in this game. On the other side of the court, the offense was not an issue for them. Toronto was shooting 48.8% from the field. Pascal Siakam led Toronto with 24 points and 7 asst and did a great job containing Embiid. James Harden was also held well, but they didn’t anticipate Maxey will play as well as he did.
The 76ers enter game two after scoring 131 points with a 51.2% shooting from the field and 50% from beyond the line. Maxey and Harris scored game-high for their teams, while also Embiid scored a double-double.
We consider the Raptors will improve on this game defensively and also expect a better game and covering the spread.
Raptors and 76ers will go under the total of 218.5@-110 (odds via BetMGM)
Again we are going with a lower scoring game as, after such a 20 points blowout. We highly expect the Raptors to organize their defense better which will contribute to our recommendation to go under the total of 218.5.
James Harden over 21.5 points @ -110 (odds via Bet365) as a bonus pick for this matchup
One more time we go with the same pick. James Harden scored 22 points in the first game, and we will back him to repeat a good game in which he will go again over the total.
